Detailed Product Description

Paris, 1994, 1st edition, 141 pp, many color photos. Destivelle's 2 person attempt on Annapurna did not succeed, but that is only a small part of this handsome book. She also describes many other severe climbs, Aconcagua South Face 1993, plus a short history of mountaineering, especially in the Himalaya.

 
Account of the 1993 post-monsoon French Annapurna South Face expedition where the authors attempted a two-person ascent of a new line up the face via the first rock pillar to the east of the Bonington route. They reached about 7800m, completing the ascent of the pillar, but poor weather and dangerous avalanche conditions forced them to abandon the summit attempt.
 
This book also has extensive sections on the authors' previous big climbs including solos on Dru, Eiger North Face, Grandes Jorasses, North Face Matterhorn, and detailed accounts of their previous expeditions: the West Pillar of Makalu 1993 pre-monsoon attempt, a Jannu North Face ascent 1987, a 1990 Everest ascent, an Aconcagua South Face ascent in 1993, a Shishapangma 1993 attempt (acclimatization for Annapurna). Hardcover, 9' x 9' square format, DJ, Fine condition.
